Oprah Winfrey and Dr. Oz suing over 'false' açaí berry endorsement claims

Chicago Sun-Times
Oprah Winfrey and America's favorite physician -- Dr. Memhet Oz -- want you to know they don't endorse dozens of açaí berry products that claim their seal of approval -- and they're suing to prove it.

"Many Americans have seen images of me, and Oprah and others supporting, it would appear, products that actually don't work in the ways that are described," Oz said in an exclusive interview Thursday with ABC's "Good Morning America." "And more importantly, when consumers trusting us try to buy these products over the Web, what they end up getting are fake products, pills that don't really have what's promised in them. They're often duped into paying more than they should. If my picture is next to a product, endorsing it and supporting your purchase of it, I did not give them permission."
